Care Assistant

Posted 29 January by Newcross Healthcare

We have several flexible vacancies for experienced Care Assistants (HCA) working full or part time hours in a variety of exceptional nursing, residential and specialist care homes in Ayr, Maybole and wider South Ayrshire region.

Unlike an agency, we focus on nurturing and rewarding great members of staff. We offer permanent jobs with all the flexibility to maintain a great work / life balance. Enjoy a permanent contract, guaranteed hours and free training with us.

Due to rural client locations and shift times, public transport is not always readily available, therefore access to your own vehicle is desirable.

The Carer Role

Working as a Newcross Care Assistant means you will be involved in ensuring each resident receives an excellent standard of care that meets their personal care plan. Personal care could include: dressing, washing, toileting and enabling service users to live their daily lives as they choose. You will play an essential role in enabling residents to live fulfilling lives, partaking in their favourite activities and interacting with their families, visitors and other residents.

You must have a compassionate approach and be confident in your ability to provide life-enhancing care that protects the dignity of the client and is in line with their personalised care plan.

In order to ensure you always have the number of shifts you require, you should be willing to travel around the local surrounding areas, therefore access to your own vehicle or public transport is desirable.

Benefits
  • Salary of up to £11.86/hr paid weekly including holiday pay
  • Permanent, flexible hours contract
  • Free uniform & training through credits earned as you work
  • Agreed mileage payments for most clients
  • Criminal record check (PVG) cost refunded after initial period
  • Online area and smartphone app to manage your availability, bookings and payslips
  • Recommend a friend scheme, paying up to £500 per successful referral
  • One-to-one relationship with a local line manager
  • 24 hour support through dedicated central team, 365 days a year

We take pride in the quality of our care, so we're looking for experienced individuals with a genuine, caring approach as well as the skills to deliver person-centred care.

Why Choose Newcross?

Newcross healthcare value all of our employees and wish for all to have clear career progression because of this (unlike any other agency) we offer over 200 training courses to ensure that our employees always have the opportunity to evolve in their role, learn new skills and develop and progress further in their career.

Newcross Healthcare's Ayr branch is based in Bath Place, a short walk from the seafront. Located on the west coast of Scotland, the large town of Ayr is the 12th most populated settlement in the country. The town's position at the mouth of the River Ayr made the town a bustling port in the Medieval Age and today it is a seaside resort popular with tourists.
